I worked at Sephora and you need to stop splashing on posh make-up, these are the best dupes which are just as good | The Sun

A FORMER makeup artist at Sephora has taken to TikTok to share her favourite drug store makeup, in a bid to save her followers from splashing out on the expensive stuff. 

Catherine, known online as @catherine_lockhart, regularly shares beauty tips with her 82,000 followers. 

In a new video, she shares her favourite bargain foundations, concealers, powders, and cream bronzers. 

She also shares some dupes for viral products, including the popular Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand. 

“I used to work at Sephora so if I use something in the drugstore, you know it’s got to be good. 

“And I have found a very specific selection of products at the drugstore that I think are just as good, if not better, than the products I love from Sephora.

“Starting with tinted moisturiser, the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB. This is my go-to for light makeup days. 

“It’s light-medium coverage, it doesn’t mess with my skin. It’s absolutely perfect. 

“For something with a little more coverage, the L’Oreal True Match Nude Serum Foundation is incredible. 

“The formula and finish is very similar to the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk.

“Only downside is this little dropper situation is atrocious. But I love her so I accept it. 

“The L’Oreal Age Perfect Serum Foundation and the NARS Light Reflecting Foundation, these are dupes. 

“Medium to full coverage, gorgeous kind of satin finish, it’s just a no-fuss foundation. I grab it whenever I know I want my skin to look really good and I want a little more coverage. 

“Okay, concealers. 

“We all know that the Kosas concealer is my ultimate holy grail, but this E.L.F. concealer comes very, very close. 

“The 16-hour Camo Concealer and it is full, full coverage. 

“It doesn’t have as dewy of a finish as the Kosas one does, it sets down more matte, but it’s beautiful. 

“Stays all day. Doesn’t crease on me. I love her. 

“Moving onto powders. L’Oreal Infalliable. Love this for setting my face, mattifies really well underneath the eyes. 

“The Maybelline Fit Me powder, in Translucent. Really brightening. 

“They last a really long time, they’re great. 

“For cream bronzer, the Revlon Colourstay Skin Awake, and this is actually a concealer, I use it in shade 075. 

“This works very similarly to the Charlotte Tilbury, even similar applicator. 

“Blends really easily, it’s a good colour and it lasts all day.”

Fans loved her recommendations, with the video gaining more than 107,000 likes and 825,000 views. 

In the comments, Catherine’s followers raved about some of the products she recommended, with one writing: “I’ve been using the bb cream for literally 10 years. It’s the BESTTTT.”

The beauty pro replied: “Sooo good! Just nothing wrong with it. Reliable af.”
